you can use any of your fave gluten free bread and crumble it up, OR do what I do, I use Barbara's Instant Mashed Potato Flakes! Tastes great!

I've used gluten free bread as well.

I've also used Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal (Gluten Free Variety). I give them a whirl in my food processor until they're very fine. :)

I make the meatloaf the way I always have--just substituting a slice of my gluten-free sandwich bread, crumbled, for the breadcrumbs per lb. of meat. I do the same thing with meatballs. We really can't tell the difference.

I used to buy corn flakes and grind them up.......then I came across this product in my regular grocery store and I couldn't believe it. It says Gluten Free right smack on the front. Its called Southern Homestyle Corn Flake Crumbs; and it comes in a can shaped like Pringles Potato Chips. It was only 2.49 for a 12 oz can, which is really cheap for a gluten free item.

They are also really great for frying chicken and fish, for making a crumb topping for a casserole, or you can add sugar and cinnamon and butter to make a graham cracker crust..and I could go on and on because use them all the time.

Just remember they are not seasoned so you need to add salt, pepper or whatever seasoning; otherwise they are extremely bland. I find it works best if I add this to the crumbs rather that to the item after its breaded.

I hope you can find them and good luck.

Does anyone have a decent gluten free meatloaf recipe?

I am now hungry for meatloaf....

I don't measure everything precisely, but my ground turkey meatloaf is gluten-free and egg-free.

1-1/2 lbs ground turkey

about 1 C Barbara's Brown Rice Crisps

about 1/2 C Ketchup

about 3 Tbs. dried minced onion

1/4 C water with 1 Tbs ground flax seed mixed in to replace egg (optional)

Garlic powder

Pepper

Dash of Worstershire sauce

Mix it all up with your hands, form into meatloaf shape, put in greased dish and bake at 350 for about 55 minutes.

We haven't had beef or eggs in meatloaf for several years and we all like this.

Good luck!

I don't add breadcrumbs. I add chopped onions and greenpeppers, garlic salt and a half a cup of spaghetti sauce. Cook it till browned, then dump more spaghetti sauce on top and serve. It's so good.

I always used oatmeal to make meatloaf and meatballs, etc. Works great for hamburgers too. Yeah, I know there's the cross-contamination thing, and maybe some can't eat oats. I've not tried oats since going gluten-free, so I don't know if I'd react to them. I suppose the next thing I'd try is maybe rice, millet, or quinoa. Come to think of it, spinach might work well, though I'd recommend giving it a ride in the blender or food processor first. The instant potatoes idea seems good too. Heck, why not use a combination of things? Just don't forget the other stuff like onion, garlic, celery seeds, minced bell peppers, etc, etc.

I have used cheap rice crackers in place of bread crumbs too and when I use them, I reduce the amount of salt I add. I add one chopped onion, one chopped bell pepper, 2 eggs, salt, pepper, and lots of garlic. Next time, I will add a small can of diced tomatoes instead of pasta sauce in the actual meatloaf but still use pasta sauce for the top.

All the Meatloaf Recipes look soooo good! I haven't tried Meatloaf since I've been "gluten-free," but I always used a mixture of Oatmeal & Saltine Cracker crumbs in mine, but I can't do that anymore. Your Meatloaf ideas here sound really good Jessica---- do you have a "gluten-free" Recipe for your Sweet & Sour Meatloaf, using the Minute Rice? Would you be willing to post it and share it with any of us? :rolleyes:

I use ground flax seeds as a filler in my meat loaf. It gives the loaf a nice "nutty" flavor and flax seeds are good for you, too.
